R. David Foster resumé


David Foster is an independent minded gregarious individual who has found solitude at a drawing table in the midst of the greater Toronto area rather than in Purvunituq, Quebec. He enjoys walking the hills and dales of the condominiums and apartments of Mississauga and Oakville, Ontario, while working for Briscott Landscaping, an excellent source of character material for deep hand drawn animation. Continually open to watercolour landscape and pencil crayon portrait work, he has gained a great deal of practical understanding from the Liason of Independent Film of Toronto in the past ten years which he plans to apply by tackling social and religious issues in artist driven personal animation projects.

OBJECTIVE: Independent Animator.

Able to bring a wide range of experience as well as thought in practical
design, organization, and production to bear upon the required tasks with an
appreciation of all interests under direction from supervisor(s).
